Hearing Aids

There are many styles of hearing aids.  The degree of hearing loss, power and options requirements, manual dexterity abilities, cost considerations, and cosmetic concerns are some of the factors that will determine the style that is right for you.  Our Doctors of Audiology will work together with you to find the best fit for you and your lifestyle.  See below for a few examples of the different styles we offer at Island Audiology.

Hearing Aid Accessories

Many different accessories are available to enhance your listening experience with hearing aids.  Most hearing aids can now stream audio signals from your cell phone, land-line phone, digital music player, and television through a separate device.  A small companion microphone is also available to help ease conversations in challenging listening situations.

Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act

On November 13, 2013, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) introduced S. 1694, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act.  This legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 per device toward the purchase of a hearing aid, available once every five years. 

The American Academy of Audiology enthusiastically supports this measure and will continue efforts to assist in passage of the legislation.  You can help to gain support for this initiative by visiting the Legislative Action Center on the Academy’s Web site.  Here you can locate your member of Congress and send an editable form letter urging support for S. 1694.
